I can hear my cousin's grandson coughing in their room which is between mine and the bathroom. Do you know how noisy is a flushing toilet

for me, not cold at all. 16° outside but my mom said she need her down jacket

Whatever you do, don't go to the bathroom and leave it unflushed.

What's wrong with it if it's just a bit of yellow water and she wakes up early to flush it?

I've always heard jet lag to China is unreal. People are always awake in the middle of the night. What was that movie that they made with Bill Murray and Scarlet Johansen? It was a jet lag theme in Tokyo.

I'm listening to a book about the Taiping Rebellion and the woman narrating it constantly says "the YOU-nited States. I never would have guessed that would bother me so much. But really, who says it like that? She has a north american accent so I don't know where this comes from. I always say uNITEd States.

Many water saver places/people in the uNITEd states recommend this practice.

Water levels of the oceans are rising more quickly than expected.

Man low level traumas to the brain can cause damage not just big concussions.

Promulgation of a new constitution is not an easy thing.

This is what I learn from the news today.

Emphasis on second syllable.

But, you get a pass because you aren't from here.

It's just a bit uncivilised, but I understand it's a lose-lose-lose situation for Lee. Either she wakes them up, doesn't flush, or abstains from going altogether.

Re: Look, you know, our draws are not rigged they are just unlikely. (pt2)

Dim Sum with my cousins, bank, and probably dinner with my mom and whoever she wants. Likely dim sum with my uncle another day.

City Center is the commercial district and the real estate is too pricey for any residential building. The residential area I am staying is at the north west edge of Kowloon. This is also the area I grew up during my teenager years until I married. Hong Kong is make up with Hong Kong Island, Kowloon Peninsula and New Territories plus number of off shore islands. Hong Kong Island is tiny but it's commercial area isthe financial center like Wall Street for NYC. The airport used to be in Kowloon facing the Victoria Harbour (between HK Island and Kowloon) but there is no room to expand and too close to residential area (Planes used to fly just above the roof top of the apartment buildings before landing). So 20 years ago, they built a new airport with one of the biggest land reclaimation on the north end of Lantau Island, the biggest offshore island (bigger than HK Island) and built the world longest suspension bridge to connect to TsingYi Island then New Territories.

There is a documentary about this project and one of the most project of all times by HK government. After I landed last night, I took a bus here.

btw, Raquel, all residential areas here are a mini city by themselves. Shops, markets, transportations, restaurants, schools, movie theaters, etc are all included in the development.

If you're by yourself, I don't have a problem. You play by your own rules.

However, if you live together with other people, or even more so if you are being put up by guests, I think it's common courtesy to flush, clean up after yourself and help them as best you can.

Maybe it's the way I've been brought up. Both my parents were strict about these sorts of things when I was a little younger.
